About Us

Entity Group is a business management consultancy providing common-sense advice and solutions.

Based in Wellington, New Zealand, we offer a range of skills and experience. Our core competencies are in the areas of project and programme planning, development and implementation. We specialise in managing business process and systems improvement and change.

With strengths in all aspects of project and programme management, we use the best of our experience to ensure project delivery and achieve effective business results.


Project management services

We manage the delivery of a particular piece of work. This includes project/programme directorship, project management, team leadership, and project administration.

Project advisory services

We provide advice or technical input, but are not directly responsible for managing delivery. This includes mentoring, strategy development, business analysis, business process review, technology assessment, options analysis, plan development, project/programme review and independent quality assurance.

Continuous improvement

Working alongside your people we apply improvement science to reduce waste, focus on removing variations and providing facts to support evidence based decision making.

Education services

We provide project management education and training. We can also develop other training on request.

Our approach

Our approach is based on many years practical experience, interweaving pragmatic methods with enthusiasm for doing a good job and achieving real results.


The benefits of using our services include our sound and practical knowledge of project and programme management, our thorough approach and focus on relevance, value, timeliness and accuracy, our proven track record in managing business and technical projects and our many years of experience in educating others and transferring skills to client organisations.
